The Making of Baby Blanket II

I was inspired by the beauty of the spring season and wanted to catch some of that on fabric.

I used contact paper to make some stencils.

I hand quilted the blanket along the lines that you can already see on the previous picture if you look closely. The lines where drawn with a HB graphite pencil. I assembled the quilt  in such a way that no binding was needed.

I finished the quilt the night before my baby was born.

And you'll always remember that THIS is what you did the night before he was born. Priceless.

What a gorgeous quilt. I like quilts with a white or cream background and just little bits of colour. And your baby is very handsome! Thank you for your comment you left on my blog. I have come over to have a look and really like your blog! Have a good weekend.
